world that it is more dangerous to be america's friend than it is to be our enemy. and i fear very much that in the age of obama that's proving to be true. now, the president's approach to nuclear disarmament which he also unveiled this week confirms the naivity of his views about america's enemies. until this week, any enemy of our country that might be contemplating a chemical, biological or large scale conventional attack against us knew they might face the worst in return, a nuclear response. we have now surrendered that powerful deterent. the new strategy prevents america from building any more nuclear weapons or using our nuclear deterrents to defend our allies against a massive conventional attack. apparently the president believes that if america stops its weapons production program the iranians and the north koreans will follow suit. [laughter] and while the president works to limit america's freedom of action, the iranian mullas are making steady progress toward acquiring a nuclear weapon. the president likes to say he's doing everything possible to prevent that from happening

about russia and america moving towards ratification but some kind of future vision, one thing you talked about were some things that american could do that would be helpful but i thought there was a need, on the other hand, for russia itself to take some vision with that perhaps with the signing of a tree or some more calls for both either together or initiating a vision of where you want to go in productions and for the relationship itself. what could russia to do that would both help the ratification here to provide that vision and make the russian elite see it as a positive? >> request and, let's take the one in the back. >> my question is somewhat parallel. as usual, your statement was important of and perceptive. i had the feeling that if you have given that statement before the u.s. armed services committee or foreign relations committee that would not have helped ratification on the american side if. you were asked to testify in washington for ratification, not on the basis of what the obama administration will argue but in terms of what would you would argue is in the in

america should wake up and care about what's going on today. >> well, i think we should care about what's going on today because anything that reduces the level of international tension or the threat of rogue nuclear weapons in the hands of whomever is a good day for people who enjoy living the lives we lead and the way we lead them. >> yeah. of course, the big concern when you talk about nuclear weapons today, as opposed to -- you know, when you were a teenager in 1947, from -- obviously, we had inspector of nuclear wars from 1940s through christmas day 1991 when soviet union collapsed but you just said it, big concern is nuclear weapons getting in the hands of rogue nations. >> that's an interesting point you just raised. because there are so many people in this country, specifically, i'd say over the age of 50 or 55 years of age, who have had their entire lives framed by the cold war and the threat of nuclear weapons from growing up in grammar school, getting positioned under the desk when they had the civil defense exercises to today when, you know, we have so much opportunity and s

a principal chief of the second largest indian tribe in america, first woman to do so and arguably the best leader that the tribe has had since moving to oklahoma from tennessee. she tripled the number of cherokees, she doubled tribal employment. she added dozens of programs in nutrition, social services, education, cultural awareness and, frankly, she made the cherokee nation more than it was, a force to be reckoned with. not only in northeast oklahoma, not only within the lives of its citizens, but quite frankly in indian country and in american politics. she was recognized for extraordinary achievements over her lifetime. honorary degrees, boards and foundations and, of course, again as my colleague and friend, mr. boren, said, the highest civilian award that any indian can receive, the medal of freedom. i newmanman very well. she led a life based on principles. the first one was just absolute personal integrity. one of the most honest and honorable people i ever met in my life. the second was humility. she was the most approachable person that you would ever want to know. a total lack o
of the challenges we face internationally can't be solved by one nation alone, but i do think that america's leadership is important in order to get issues on the international agenda and to move in concert with other countries to have an effective response. there are a host of other issues obviously that have to be addressed. and one of the points that was made during this summit is we're talking here about the instruments of potential war or terrorism, but obviously, there are also the reasons, the rags nal, excuses for conflict that have to be addressed as well. i remain committed to being a partner with countries around the world and in particular, hot spots around the world, to see if we can reduce those tensions and resolve those conflicts. and the middle east would be a prime example. i think that the need for peace between israelis and palestinians in the arab states remains as critical as ever. it is a very hard thing to do. and i know that even if we are applying all of our political capital to that issue, the israeli people, through their government, and the palestinian people t

america achieve new heights of prosperity on earth while demonstrating the power of a free, open society, to harness the ingenuity of his people. i have been part of that generation so inspired by the space program. 1961 was the year of my birth, the year kennedy made his announcement. one of my earliest memories of sitting on my grandfather's shoulders, waving a flag at astronauts arrived in hawaii. for me the space program has always captured and essential part of what it means to be an american. reaching for new heights, stretching beyond what previously did not seem possible. so as president, i believe that space exploration is not a luxury, it's not an afterthought in america's quest for a brighter future, it's an essential part of that quest. so today i'd like to talk about the next chapter in the story. the challenges facing our space program are different. our imperative for this program are different than in decades past. we're no longer racing against an adversariy or compete to go achieve a singular goal like reaching the moon. what was once a global competition is long since
obviously, jay, says he wants america to remain at the top of its game when it comes to space exploration but his administration feels there is a time to reassess and kind of reset the situation. it is not his quest to end our attempts to go to the moon. correct? >> that's correct. he is, indeed, as you are saying, tamron, you said in the introduction that he's coming here to speak to the workers and what i've just been told, he's going to speak before about 200 select people in the building where they will build and not a single worker i'm told has been invited. i wond fer the president knows that. maybe he'll be told that when he gets over to the building and maybe we'll find him pulling in some workers because that was the purpose of his trip as you said. what we have here as tom henricks the astronaut speaking on andrea mitchell's show about five minutes ago on msnbc, we have two parties that are conflicting on what we should do about the space program and as tom said, there's very good things in both of them. the congress thinks that the president should not kill constellation shuttl
